Established in 2017, Hit The North is Newcastle’s first and largest inner-city music festival. The annual event sees hundreds of the best up and coming musical acts from across the globe descend upon over 10 well-know Newcastle venues for a unique day-long fest experience in the summer sun!


In previous years, iconic venues like O2 Academy, Riverside and Boiler Shop have played host to the likes of Slaves, Lethal Bizzle, DMA’s, The Hunna, Jake Bugg, Nothing But Thieves, The Horrors, Peace, Drenge, Pale Waves, and Jungle, to name but a few!


“With heavy-hitters to bring the crowd-pleasers, and a host of undiscovered prodigies, Hit The North festival strikes the perfect balance.”


The Line Of Best Fit

“At this years Hit The North we’ve been unbelievably lucky to discover new acts from across the globe, all of whom we cannot wait to hear more from. It was a true triumph all topped off by an outstanding performance from British Sea Power, we cannot wait to come back again and do it all again next year!”


Louder Than War

“No matter what your music taste, there’ll be some live sounds you’ll love”


The Courier
